Manze’s has sat on Deptford High Street for over a century. If you’re familiar with traditional East End pie and mash shops, then you’ll recognise the green of its shopfront as much as you will its gleaming white-tiled, wooden booth interior and its glistening parsley sauce. As ever, pie, mash, and liquor is the order. And, as ever, it will more than likely require a generous dousing of vinegar, salt, and pepper. The pies are filled with minced beef and, frankly, aren’t exactly flavourful on their own. And the mash is stodgy and satisfying—as good as anything for an empty stomach in need of familiarity (and a side of London history).
